Our wellness Program

My primary goal is to produce a few wonderful healthy kittens. All of our initial breeding cats and any introduced cats were tested negative for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus. These are retro virus diseases and are transmitted through body fluid exchange , as occurs with fighting or mating. Your kitten will never have had a chance to be exposed to these diseases and unless you let the kitten outside or expose it to an untested cat this should not be a risk.

We are lucky now to have DNA tests available for a few genetically transmitted conditions. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a congenital heart problem, has been a big concern in many purebred breeds of cats and this DNA test has made it possible to eliminate this particular defect from our cats. I tested all of my breeding cats when this test first became available and was fortunate that none of my Ragdolls tested positive.

My kittens are available for their new homes at 3 months of age. They are still wonderful cute kittens at this age but are mature enough to adapt to a new environment . All kittens are spayed or neutered , vaccinated with Nobivac 3 RCP twice and will have had their initial Rabies vaccine.

If you will be introducing your kitten to another cat it is important to be sure that your current pet is free of any hidden contagious or infectious diseases. Cats can appear perfectly healthy but be carriers of such things as ringworm, herpes, chlamydia or intestinal parasites. Kittens are much more susceptible to these types of things than adults and can become symptomatic after cohabitating with another healthy looking cat. If your new kitty is going to be living with an existing cat I recommend that you have your pet vet checked if it has been over one year since a previous exam. Tell your vet you are getting a new kitty.

 

These kittens have been bred to be "indoor" pampered pets. I highly recommend that you not let your kitty outdoors-even if supervised. Most cats are going to like it and will learn to escape. A ragdoll outside is not going to fair well against a dog or a car.
